Steamed Fish with Chinese Herbs

red snapper with chinese herbsIngredients:

  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dry sherry or white wine
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 12 ounces fish fillets (such as red snapper or rock cod)
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 3 scallions, slivered
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

Mix soy sauce, sherry, and sesame oil in small bowl. Rub fish with the soy sauce mixture and place in a glass pie plate. Sprinkle ginger evenly over the fish. Sprinkle fish with pepper to taste. Bring water to boiling in a steamer (either a Chinese bamboo steamer or a large pot with a steamer insert that will hold the plate with the fish). Place fish above the steam; cover and cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until fish is cooked through. Sprinkle with the scallions and, if desired, cilantro. Serves 2.
